# Calculate default risk premium?

Suppose 10-year T-bonds have a yield of 5.30% and 10-year corporate bonds yield 6.75%. Also, corporate bonds have a 0.25% liquidity premium versus a zero liquidity premium for T-bonds, and the maturity risk premium on both Treasury and corporate 10-year bonds is 1.15%. What is the default risk premium on corporate bonds?

r (corp)= rf (risk free rate, in this case 5.30%) + lp + drp+ mrp,

so

6.75= 5.30 + 0.25 + drp + 1.15

solve for drp= 0.05%

remember that the maturity risk premium is already built into the T-bond rate as quoted.
